To view this FTP site in Windows Explorer

Post by JohnnyWakko » Wed May 12, 2010 9:57 pm

Hi all

I just managed to get my FTP viewable through WinExplorer.

Is there a way I can assign this space to a "Drive Letter" or a Networked Drive? through WinExpl? So each time I start my PC and start WinExplorere that directory appears?

This? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... work-drive or http://lifehacker.com/304502/map-an-ftp ... in-windows. No drive letter without extra software. Mounting remote servers as if they were on your machine is trivial in the Unix-based systems though (Exetel runs a Linux system).

CurlFtpFS - http://curlftpfs.sourceforge.net

I use this regularly on both Exetel and other FTP servers, mind you i don't leave the session open for many many hours.
